responding to domestic violence: a toolkit for faith communities

Each year, more abuse victims, perpetrators, and family members seek help from clergy and religious leaders than all other helping professionals combined. Anne Horton & Judith Williamson

Responding to Domestic Violence: A Toolkit for Faith Communities in Whatcom County is a comprehensive guide for clergy and laypeople; it has tools both for being proactive in promoting healthy relationships and reactive in using best practices to respond to abuse.

If you intend to utilize the information and resources in this Toolkit, please consider connecting with the Bellingham-Whatcom County Commission Against Domestic Violence for support and training.
